Sherif (Faruq), Guide to the Contents of the Qur’an, London, Ithaca P, 1985, 165 p. ISBN 9780863720307


Because the Qur’an deals with so many diverse subjects in its various parts, finding complete information on any one of its numerous topics can be difficult. Muslims as well as non-Muslims have long felt the need for a compendium of the Qur’an arranged systematically so that all the themes appear in a concise form. This book provides such a guide by arranging the themes into 68 sections, each containing the sum of the relevant verses. There is an index to the verses referred to in these sections and classified by subject, as well as a general index. In this revised edition no subject has been left out, and readers will find within it a comprehensive guide to the contents of the Qur’an in a condensed form.
